What are the recommended settings for the jukebox user ?

In order to get AmpJuke running in jukebox mode, it's recommended to have a specific user account created for that purpose.

...or use an existing user with the correct settings in order to make AmpJuke running in juekbox mode without any problems.

 

This FAQ-entry will outline the settings that should be set to meet the requirement for operating AmpJuke in jukebox mode.

 

 

Assume you have created a user account for the sole purpose of serving as the jukebox user (the username entered in the configuration of the jukebox), - here's what should be activated/enabled (and what shouldn't).

Everything referred to below is taken from the personal settings.

 

 

When a track is selected: Play it immediately (more here).

 

Use flash player to listen to music: Should be off (unchecked). More here.

 

Display what is being played: Should be off (unchekced). More here.

 

Automatic play : After last track is played: Should be ON (checked). This is important. More here.

 

Submit streamed tracks to last.fm: It's a matter of taste/preference to have this on or off. If you leave this on (checked) together with a last.fm username and -password, every track played in jukebox mode will be submitted and show up on the last.fm page for the last.fm username. On (checked) of off (unchecked): It's your choice. More here.

 

Also avoid transcoding/downsampling. To be honest, I haven't tested that, - I guess there's a 50-50 chance it will work.

 

That's it! The settings mentioned above are the most important to check/verify for your "jukebox user".

 

Note that other personal settings such as theme, language, items/page etc.etc. are (still) personal settings that will be used for each user when he/she logs in.
